Default Newb Question: Smells like gas coming from my vents

Just bought an 02 WRX about a week ago...
It's been cold here the past few day so I've been running my heat, I've noticed a faint smell of gasoline whenever I run the heat. Am I running too rich or is it a more serious problem. I've just noticed it over the past couple days so I'm worried it might be leading to a bigger problem.

Let me know if you go to the dealership for the repair, and what it sets you back. In 2004, my buddy had the fuel hose under the intake replaced, and the dealership covered it under warranty. Last month, I had the same repair done on my 02, and it ran me $500.
